The Miracle in the Middle
by Charlotte Gambill
Waiting. No one is a big fan of waiting, and we talk a great deal in Christian circles about how difficult it is to wait on God. In her book, The Miracle in the Middle, Charlotte Gambill writes about this season of waiting as being “in the middle.” You’ve moved beyond the excitement of an initial calling or hearing from God, but you haven’t reached the season of harvest and blessing. You’re stuck in the middle, just trying to keep moving forward without giving up.
Over the eleven chapters in this book, Gambill encourages the reader to drop anchor (cling to hope), listen for God’s voice in the void, be prepared to handle the strain, re-check priorities, maintain the vision and more. I found that it took me a while to really get into the book, but at about halfway, I started underlining and turning down the corners of pages. For some reason, the second half of the book made more of an impact on me, so it’s a book that is worth the full read—don’t put it down after the first few chapters.
Each chapter ends with a few Action Points and Prayer Points, which work well for an individual who wants to apply the lessons, but wouldn’t really serve as content for a small group or book club discussion.
By the end of the book, Gambill encourages the reader not just to survive seasons of waiting or push through to the end, but how to actually discover the joy and the miracle in the middle.
